Re: What (natural) choices/options do I have with a hospital birth?

Jennifer, there are disorders the newborn screen tests for that would require the use of special formula. I would have to do some research to find out which one(s), but I remember dh took care of one baby once whose newborn screen came back positive for something or other, and they had to use a rare prescription formula. The insurance covered it, but he had to find it, and I remember he was frustrated about that, but he really needed to find it to get the insurance stuff in line so Tricare would pay for it. It was super expensive. It's rare, but happens, and thankfully there is a screening test for it.
